Since 1982, Ron Horton (trumpet) has been an integral part of New York's flourishing jazz scene and he stands out both as an exemplary instrumentalist and as a highly progressive composer and arranger. Whether called upon as a sideman or as a leader of one of his own ensembles, he shows that he is committed to further expanding the existing perimeters of jazz. Horton has had many long musical associations with leaders such as saxophonist Jane Ira Bloom (1983-2000) and pianist Andrew Hill. He was a member of Hill's sextet from 1998 until 2003, and was musical director and co-arranger for Hill's big band.

A key member of New York's Jazz Composers Collective, going back to its inception in 1992, Horton appears on numerous albums both as leader and in the bands lead by other members of the Collective, such as Ben Allison and Michael Blake, as well as the collective's Herbie Nichols Project. He has collaborated with countless other musicians including Will Holshouser, Rez Abbasi, Phillip Johnston, Andy Laster, Mick Rossi, Matt Wilson, Allan Chase, Andy Biskin, Ted Nash, Mario Pavone, Maryanne DeProphetis, Kris Davis, Darcy James Argue and many others.

In a career that spans over 30 years, bassist/composer Ben Allison has developed his own instantly identifiable sound, solidifying an international reputation as one of the leading voices of his generation. Known for his inspired arrangements, inventive grooves and hummable melodies, Ben draws from the jazz tradition and a range of influences from rock and folk to 20th century classical and world music, seamlessly blending them into a cinematic, cohesive whole. With his groups The Ben Allison Band, Think Free, The Easy Way Trio, Peace Pipe, and Medicine Wheel, Ben has toured extensively throughout the world, winning fans and building new audiences with an adventurous yet accessible sound and a flair for the unexpected. In addition to being an established educator, over the past two decades, Ben has solidified his reputation as a strong voice for artist empowerment and musician's rights.

Drummer Tim Horner began playing the drums at the age of ten. With a professional career of over 40 years, Horner has played with the who's who in jazz, including Warne Marsh, Hank Jones, Helen Merrill, Miroslav Vitous, Clifford Jordan, Pepper Adams, Richie Cole, Joe Locke, Frank Kimbrough, Ted Nash, Ben Allison, The Jazz Composers Collective, Wynton Marsalis, The Maria Schneider Jazz Orchestra, The Village Vanguard Jazz Orchestra, Mark Murphy, Joe Williams, Dave Liebman, Billy Drewes, and many more.
